About the author (1994)

Gabriela Mistral's pen name was formed from those of Frederic Mistral, a Provencal poet, and Gabriele D'Annunzio, the Italian poet and patriot. Her first major collection of poetry was published in the United States in 1922 under the title Desolacion. The sonnets of this volume, among her very best, evoke her passion for a young lover and her anguish at his suicide. Critics consider her collection Tala (Felling of Trees), published in Buenos Aires in 1938, her best work. Mistral's translated collections are now out of print in the United States. Anti-imperialism and a feminist rebellion against a masculine society are among the main themes of Mistral's poetry, but love---physical, religious, humanitarian, and maternal---was her primary subject; an unhappy personal life provided the source of much of her poetic drive. Much of Mistral's time and energy was dedicated to the children of the world; she was an energetic spokesperson for them and was responsible for the foundation of schools throughout Latin America. On the invitation of the Mexican government, she reorganized that country's school system in the 1920s, and she represented Chile in various posts at the League of Nations, the United Nations, and as a member of the consular service. She was one of Eleanor Roosevelt's many friends in the international community of women's issues.
